Extremely well run hostel with all of the facilities that you could require including an amazing pool. The staff are friendly and helpful. Only slight negatives are that it is 5km from the town centre and due to the fact that it is a franchise and the facility itself is very large there is not much of an atmosphere.

It was one of the best hostels I was in Argentina. The staff was very helpful and you can book all transports youn need at their Office. the rooms are very big and had bis lockers. the pool is llike in a nice Hotel and everythink is very clean. The only bad Thing - if it is important for someone- the hostel is 5 km from the village, but every bus can stop in front of the door.. and more bad, they use a lot of one-way- things llike spoons, muesli-bowls etc.

Just wanted to underline the staff here were terrible and not helpful one bit! When we arrived the staff member was rude and half way through our conversation answers a phone call and we had to wait about 15 mins we just wanted to check in then the bar guy wouldn't let us buy water but was behind the bar still working I just think if you are working in tourism you should be helpful and cheerful especially for people coming from oversea! The boss really need to talk to this girl!!

Great swimming pool! This hostel has potential to be amazing... However some of the staff were so miserable and this was noticed by a lot of the guests. The food was a bit naff and you have to get a bus into town to get to a restaurant. I am sure the BBQ was good but we missed this unfortunately. I would recommend the place but it could be better!

This place is massive. For the price, it's definitely a steal. The pool makes a nice place to relax after a long day of adventures in the national park. The staff were incredibly friendly and helpful, contrary to other reviews. My only recommendation for the hostel is to ramp up the WiFi capacity because it clearly can't handle the number of people using it.

We were advised to stay at Hostel Inn by friends, who had been there a year before. Due to the negative reviews on tripadviser from the last months we started doubting. I'm really glad we did decide to book. The setting (with the pool, cute houses on the side with the bedrooms, big social area etc) was great, our room and bathroom were clean and the staff at the front desk were all very friendly and helpful (we didn't experience the rudeness that was described on tripadvisor at all).

Great hostel out of Town but short bus ride (every 20 minutes or 40 pesos taxi). You can also catch the bus to Iguassu Falls from just outside. Awesome pool and outside area but they play unnecessarily loud techno music from about 2pm which ruins the chilled out atmosphere. Travel agent was helpful but gave us different information on few occasions so just make sure to clarify. Staff were friendly but not enough of them and they seemed overworked, there from 6am till midnight everyday.

This hostel is very party minded. Music is played every day untill late which you can hear in your dorm. Rooms smell very bad and the location could not be worse, more than 30 minutes by bus to the centre. And the bus does not go at regular times so you could be waiting for over half an hour. The only great thing was fruit at breakfast and the pool.

no atmosphere at all. the staff doesn't try to make your stay any fun. we had to pay 100 pesos key deposit. I gave the key together with the sheets before check out back to the staff and I didn't get my 100 pesos back. I've been mailing them every day and they just refuse to respond. don't stay here!

This is a beautiful hostel, and is a great place to meet people. The location is very good and the facilities are terrific, especially the pool. The staff however needs a little work. They try hard, but are not incredibly organized and at times were not incredibly helpful. It's possible that they were having a bad few days, as it was quite busy when I was there. This is an awesome hostel with a great atmosphere. You should give it a try.

Great hostel. Loved the pool and the poolside bar. Pretty good for meeting people, but the staff could have been more helpful with information about Iguazu Falls. They knew enough about the Argentine side but were little help in working out the logistics of visiting the Brazilian side.

Nice place and good hostel. Bad points: One electric socket per room Wifi doesnt work properly unless your in the "wifi lounge" Some staff just cant be arsed. They find it a burden to help you although one of the night staff ladies was very helpful.

it is a good facility, it just needs more staff to help, front desk is always busy and most of the time there is just one person, they will help you with grace but it will take a while, breakfast was average, you can pay extra if you want eggs..., the pool is the best it can use some more chairs in that area, the few they have are always busy overall is a good place, rooms are clean and price is right.

The hostel is on the main road to get to the town you have to take a 15 minute bus ride which was 3 peso each way. Only 2 computers were working and the wifi was a bit hit and miss. Pool is great, breakfast was really good, fruit, tea, coffee, cereal, bread, jam, cake, water and you get to eat as much as you like. There is free ping pong and 2 pool tables but you have to pay for these... Although there are signs that you can book onward tickets at the travel desk this is no longer available.

For a hostel, there were too many rules / restrictions and staff was not as helpfull as we would expect. They were uninterested and not helpfull (example: when we needed to contact the bus company to check on our reservations). Furthermore, internet connection and speed was very poor. This was actually the worst we experienced during our 4-week trip in Argentina. The location is good, nice pool and clean rooms.

Hi; We understand your complaints, thanks for leaving a rview for us. The fact that we have rules is to keep the place under control, you would not like to be at at messy place I Guess. Internet is a problem at all country side towns in Argentina, unfortunatelly. Hope you enjoy your travels, and again, thank you for the review. Management Hostel Inn Iguazu

Overall this hostel was pretty sweet. It felt like you were in a resort as it had a clean pool that people actually can use. There is a great hang out area with a large patio by the pool. The bar prices were decent which helped because it is far out of town. Breakfast was decent. The food was also priced well and quite good. Wifi available only in common areas. The staff was not the most helpful and we had to do a lot of our research on our own.

The staff was generally very helpful, however at night when we were trying to figure out dinner they said they would be bringing out empanadas in 20 minutes and an hour later they didn't appear. That was kind of frustrating. Other than that our stay was great. The pool deck is gorgeous and there are plenty of computers with good internet available. It felt safe and chill. Definitely if you're staying here take the Río Uruguay colectivo (3 pesos) from the bus station, not a taxi.

the staff wasn't helpful at all and not very friendly (skyping while you are waiting at the desk, no advices, refuse to call a new hostel, etc. etc. ) the pool is nice to have and it's a huge hostel. but the atmosphere isn't too good.....you don't into talk with others very easily...it feels more like staying in a HOTEL than a hoStel
